weakness

please ignore my weakness
and ignore too my dread
it shouldn’t be surprising
no matter what i’ve said
and if i take a step too far
get lost in my own mind
there are many routes to heaven
if i seek i may yet find
now i think a summer breeze
could carry me away
i seem to have no substance
and no desire to stay
but charming as the picture is
it doesn’t float my boat
i’ve had too many compromises
shoved right down my throat
hold me close and kiss my cheek
and whisper your goodbyes
but please ignore the tears
that are streaming from my eyes
they were never meant for you
you’ve got your youth and health
and if truth were ever known
i’m only sorry for myself

    What a beautifully sad poem, if something can be both beautiful AND sad at the same time. I’m not sure if it’s cynical though. I keep wavering back and forth. It seems more defeated, more “lost love”, more “just giving up”. Very well done! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
